The effect of variable electricity pricing can be evaluated by simulation. Consumers and their potential demand-side management measures are modelled based on their individual load curves in order to examine different pricing structures. The optimal rate coefficients can be determined by nonlinear optimization. This paper compares different optimization algorithms for this task depending on the complexity of the respective rate and subsequently deduces a recommendation for further evaluations.
